Air links to Scotland to be restored

Air links to and from Scotland could soon be restored, the House of Keys was told.

Five routes were dropped when ticket seller Citywing went into iiquidation on Friday night - but progress continues; services to Belfast and Newcastle have already been picked up by Eastern Airways.

In Keys yesterday (Tuesday), Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer said talks were underway to regain other destinations - including a service to Scotland.

The Department of Economic Development is currently assisting all 20 Citywing staff in finding work, and hopes any new airlines would consider employing them.

Mr Harmer is hopeful the problem will be resolved soon.
